the only capital now in the market is the initial 2 USD, but there are 2 dollars and 1 tether money now in the market.

User A ends up with 1 USD of bitcoin
User B ends up with 1 USDT of tether
Tether ends up with 1 USD of bitcoin

can someone explain this?

if this was the case, why has tether printed $550m in five days during a crash, more than it did in the entire month of december when BTC doubled its value.

you see, the prior theory was "of course tether is printing, everyone is exchanging their bitcoin for tether!". which your theory flies in the face of.

no it's not, you can short on bitfinex. whale deposited tons of cash so they can short btc.

there is really nothing strange here, this tether fud is fucking retarded

>> No.6778423

This is how it's meant to be, but this isn't what's happening.

What they're doing is printing tether, sending it to an exchange, and then buying BTC with it (hence why BTC pumps).

Unless you can name one person who has exchanged USD for USDT ... and how I would be able to do that too.

I think teathers are printed to keep usdt price = 1 dollar when usdt is in high demand.. esp when there is a dip or dump expected.
So i think whenever usdt gets printed it because insiders know that shits gonna crash and loads of ppl are gonna cash out into tether.
But tether must always = 1 dollar so they print more to keep price constant.

>> No.6779283

Except there is no link between what Exchange accepts in USD and what Exchange (as Tether) prints as USDT

In reality your scenario is:
>Exchange accepts X USD for Y BTC/Pixelmoney
>Tether prints Z quantity of USDT
And it seems apparent that Z>X by a great amount so that
>1 USDT = 0 USD

Yeah but they could legitimately only do that if Tether actually held more real USD. The USDT is supposed to be tethered to actual USD holdings, so them "printing" more USDT is (if legitimate) just be a proxy for them having more USD in reserves.

Except they just hit the print monopoly money button.

But its all justified if they have a bank or lender financing them.. then its just balances on a ledger.

Why doesn't the usgov kill bitcoin and tether by making a digital us dollar? Basically tether which is not a scam.

Are you impyling bitfinex is using tether to pump btc? The. Youre a retard like.bitfinexed

>> No.6779664

Because crypto is a meme that has no real purpose. And if ever does gov will step in and establish a monopoly like they did in the Free Banking Era (as you suggest).

>> No.6779689

Tether is a way to circumvent the 'old boys banker club'. These exchanges lost all their relatiopships with banking due to 'money laundering' laws — if they didn't have tether they woldnt be able to operate. If you knew anything about hiw banks operate then you would know the purpose of tether
